The Telegram Open Network (TON) is completed by 90%, and the launch of the test network is scheduled for the end of March 2019. It is reported by The Block, with reference to the report received by the investors of the project.

It is noteworthy that the testnet launch was originally scheduled to take place in January, however, it is likely that the developers were faced with unforeseen circumstances.

It should be emphasized that TON will also offer users smart contracts, the basic functionality of which is already ready.

Earlier, a number of media outlets reported that the main TON network would be launched in March, but without public testing of the technology this seems unlikely.

According to the HASH Crypto Investment Bank report, by the end of 2019, the total cost of GRAM tokens could reach $ 29.5 billion.

Even before the official public release of the cryptocurrency of the messenger, Telegram can increase in price by 200% relative to its value during the initial offer of coins. It is reported by Bloomberg.

As previously reported, Telegram tokens may appear on the Liquid Bitcoin Exchange already on July 10. The distributor is Gram Asia, which calls itself the largest holder of GRAM tokens in Asia. It intends to put up for sale rights to cryptocurrency at $ 4 per unit.

At the same time, one of the investors said to the publication that at the time of purchase the price of 1 Gram was $ 1.33.

It is worth noting, however, that after the announcement of the public sale of Telegram tokens to Liquid, the media reported that this intention had nothing to do with the official plans of Telegram.

Then one of Telegram's investors stated that no one has the right to sell tokens before their official launch in accordance with the signed agreement. Moreover, representatives of the popular messenger noted that they first heard about Gram Asia.

Later, CEO Liquid Mike Kayamora admitted that Telegram has no relation to the placement on Liquid: the deal was concluded exclusively between the exchange and Gram Asia, which allegedly is an incubator for the TON project.

The Block's leading analyst Larry Chermak on several tweets expressed skepticism about the announced Telegram tokenale based on the Liquid stock exchange, saying that he would “think twice before making a decision to invest.”
